April 12th - #100 - WOW!!

I can hardly believe that I am up to quilt photo #100. To celebrate, I'm having a giveaway, a drawing for one of my table runners, similar to the one on yesterday's post. Thank you to the girls who have commented, you will be in the drawing, as well as anyone who comments today, or becomes a follower, or recommends my blog to a friend who becomes a follower.

This quilt is one that I finished at the retreat I just attended. The body of this quilt was done about 3 years ago, and then it all sat in a large ziplock bag with the red and blue for the border. So I just needed to create and attach the border. Isn't it cool???? I love the things that come from the tri rec rulers. This one moved to the top of the list of things to have quilted.

The retreat was splendid! I didn't take as many photos as I always intend to. But I got a few. First I want to show you the view from my seat.

Isn't that amazing? We had quite a windstorm the first night, and I always sleep with my window open. At one point of the night I thought I was hearing the waves. Hearing it crash in and go out, in and go out, then it came in, went out and didn't come back in!!! I thought OMG, it's a sunami!!! And then I realized it was probably just the wind in the trees. Funny how your mind plays those tricks on you...

We had a wonderful visitor one day



My son brought Carter over for a visit, and run around the field. He loved this room that had all that brilliant fabric in it, from a vendor who brought it for us to shop from! It was great watching him fondle some of the fabric.

Thank you again, for stopping by. And don't forget to leave a message or send me an email if you would like to be in my giveaway drawing.

I love that quilt you showed us today. Of course, I'd love to be entered in your giveaway and have a chance to win a nice table runner made by you. Since I use a runner on my table AND on my kitchen island as well as one on each of the 2 coffee tables in my house, I am needing LOTS of nice runners!!!

Hello Sharon -- Just got home from work, so glad I made it in time to tell you congratulations on the 100th quilt showing. I am one of your fans -- and if you haven't noticed yet, I love Red!

Can't wait to see your next 100! BTW, my sister Phyllis is a LD Nurse too.

Beautiful Sharon! I absolutely love that quilt. I wish I had the mental energy to quilt right now, that would be on the top of the list to do!

btw, is this pattern in a book or stand-alone pattern?

Fantastic quilt. Wished I could have attended the retreat. Dumas is such a wonderful place to go.

We are in Santa Fe and it rained, was windy and hailed this afternoon ... thought I was in Washington.

Beautiful quilts! Carol told me about your blog. I'll have to check it out more. I started quilting years ago but couldn't continue with it.

That quilt is a stunner--I love how the blocks have the illusion of curves. And I recognize your retreat location--was there just a couple of weeks ago with my ASG group. Sally
